David Chacon from the Cooperative of Fishermen in Costa Rica (CoopeTarcoles R.L) on his solution
David Chacon from the Cooperative of Fishermen (CoopeTarcoles R.L), Costa Rica on his solution “Communities leading sustainable fisheries management”. In Costa Rica the coastal population is closely tied, culturally and economically, to life on the seashore and strongly dependent on artisanal fisheries. But blocked access to marine resources, degraded and polluted habitats and witnessed declining fish stocks threaten livelihoods and increase local poverty. CoopeTarcoles, as an artisanal fishermen’s cooperative, encouraged the community to use local marine resources sustainably, in order to safeguard their economic future and cultural way of life.
